road constructionRecently, an MPO committee provided review comments to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for a roadway widening in north Hillsborough County on US 301. The FDOT is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study to evaluate the expansion of a 13.8 mile segment of US 301 from its current two-lane undivided configuration to a divided roadway facility with paved shoulders, sidewalks/ shared use paths in each direction, pedestrian features, and drainage improvements. The project is from Fowler Avenue to the proposed SR 56 (Pasco). For more information contact Stephanie Pierce at 813/975-6445 or stephanie.pierce@dot.state.fl.us.
